Seek and you shall find
Huntress is San Diego's most distinct steak restaurant, offering the finest cuts of meat, one of the largest collections of Japanese whisky in Southern California, and a contemporary, captivating atmosphere where music elevates every dish. Huntress provides an alluring experience to provoke your primal instinct, capture your senses and charm your evening. Award-winning "People's Chef" and San Diego native, James Montejano, will helm the modern steakhouse kitchen, bringing his breadth of experience and skilled technique to the table.
Anticipation begins the hunt. Huntress forages the globe for the finest quality beef with unmatched taste - sourcing only sustainable meat. Every steak goes through a special dry-aging process for mouth-watering texture, and is butter-poached for tenderness before being cooked to perfection using a Japanese Binchotan coal-fired grill. An in-house butcher will hand-cut an extensive collection of meats including American, Japanese and Australian Wagyu. Along with a high-class selection of steak, Huntress will also offer locally sourced, organic produce and responsibly-sourced seafood, creating a wide range of options for taste-seekers and foodies alike.
To the Excitement of the Chase
Pair your 40-Day Dry-Age Bone-In Filet, or Miso Chilean Sea Bass with a bottle of wine, champagne, or delectible craft cocktail. Choose from our curated wine program of over 1,000 bottles, the bubbly and rich champagne list, or the Huntress creative cocktail program consisting of tableside smoked whisky cocktails. In the mood for something special? Order a perfectly blended, lusciously fizzy, ice-cold concoction from our Toki Japanese highball machine. If you'd rather Huntress lead the way, reserve your spot at one of our special whisky tastings and dinner pairings.
Modern Decadence in Design
Huntress flaunts a modern and chic dining room in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter. The main level is designed with strong architectural moments, such as a bold wall composed of framed butcher knives and a spectacular green-veined marble bar. The second floor Mezzanine features a Japanese Whisky Bar and unique dining areas, including an intimate wine tasting area, giving VIP guests the perfect birds-eye-view of the main level. Huntress' private dining, The Grand Pacific Room, located on the third level, offers a unique and creative environment without compromising design or functionality.
